Special Flight (Episode #2602)

KQED World: Wed, Aug 24, 2016 -- 7:00 AM

A dramatic account of the plight of undocumented foreigners at the Frambois detention center in Geneva, Switzerland, and of the wardens who struggle to reconcile humane values with the harsh realities of a strict deportation system. The 25 Frambois inmates featured are among the thousands of asylum seekers and illegal immigrants imprisoned without charge or trial, and facing deportation to their native countries, where they fear repression or even death. The film, made in Switzerland, is an expose of the contradictions between the country's compassionate social policies and the intractability of its immigration laws.

El Velador (The Night Watchman) (Episode #2509H)

KQED 9: Mon, Aug 15, 2016 -- 11:00 PM

From dusk to dawn, "El Velador (The Night Watchman)" accompanies Martin, a guard who watches over the extravagant mausoleums of some of Mexico's most notorious drug lords. In the labyrinth of the cemetery, this film about violence without violence reminds us that, amid the turmoil of a drug war that has claimed more than 50,000 lives, ordinary existence persists in Mexico and quietly defies the dead. Directed by Natalia Almada.

My Way to Olympia (Episode #2703)

KQED World: Wed, Aug 10, 2016 -- 7:00 AM

Who better to cover the Paralympics, the international sporting event for athletes with physical and intellectual disabilities, than Niko von Glasow, the world's best-known disabled filmmaker? Unfortunately -- or fortunately for anyone seeking an insightful and funny documentary -- this filmmaker frankly hates sports and thinks the games are "a stupid idea." Born with severely shortened arms, von Glasow serves as an endearing guide to London's Paralympics competition in "My Way to Olympia." As he meets a one-handed Norwegian table tennis player, the Rwandan sitting volleyball team, an American archer without arms and a Greek paraplegic boccia player, his own stereotypes about disability and sports get punctured.

Ping Pong (Episode #2609H)

KQED 9: Mon, Aug 8, 2016 -- 11:00 PM

Call this old age, extreme edition: Eight players with 703 years among them compete in the Over 80 World Table Tennis Championships in China's Inner Mongolia. British players Terry, 81, who has been given a week to live, and Les, 91, a weightlifter and poet, are going for the gold. Inge, 89, from Germany, has used table tennis to paddle her way out of dementia. And Texan Lisa, 85, is playing for the first time. "Ping Pong" is a wonderfully unusual story of hope, regret, friendship, ambition, love - and sheer human tenacity in the face of aging and mortality. By Hugh Hartford and Anson Hartford.
